    Kristen Kosinski's Visit - February 2011

    Status: Complete - Successful

    Operating Status:

    On her visit Kristen met Grace, SHERP director and her brother. Below is the information she gathered on this visit:
    -The well was working with improvements made by Paul in late January. He put in new valves, pipes, and fitted the pump with an automatic switch. The well now pumps for 25 minutes and goes off until water level comes back up
    -To maximize the function of the well, we need to replace current pump with a $550 pump (approx 200,000 KSH)
    -Grace and her brother both acknowledge that the well is working and that the community is healthier because of this well
